its easy to replace, the one on the drivers side was 30 something bucks and it took me 15 min to change the other ones seem to be as easy to replace as that one

I got a new water pump engine mount from Ford. I think the cost was $27. My grandpa and I installed it and it was a bit of a challenge getting the bolt holes all lined up. You might have to use a big bar of some sort as a lever to force things to line up. Otherwise it's an easy swap.

How can you tell if you need new motor mounts? Sometimes when I shift hard or I'm racing it feels like the engine wants to jump out of the car. Also, I hear sqeaking sounds from the engine bay from time to time.
